ean and Agnès Foillard took over his father’s domaine in 1980. The greater part of the vineyard is planted on the Côte du Py, the famed slope outside the town of Villié-Morgon, the pride of the Morgon AOC. The granite and schist soils found here sit on an alluvial fan at the highest point above the town and impart great complexity. However, it takes more than that to make great wine. Early on, Jean started a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification: starting with old vines, never using pesticides, harvesting late, rigorously sorting to remove all but the healthiest grapes, adding minimal doses of sulfite or none at all, and refusing both chaptalization and filtration.
